It pretty much took forever…… But the day is finally upon us. Each and every BlackBerry user on AT&T with a supported device now has cause for celebration. That’s right people, the long awaited and highly anticipated OS 4.5 roll out is now a done deal. Every BlackBerry handset carried by AT&T that supports OS 4.5 now has access to it on RIM’s AT&T downloads page. Here’s a quick list for you:

  • Pearl 8100
  • Pearl 8110
  • Pearl 8120
  • Curve 8300
  • Curve 8310
  • Curve 8320
  • 8800
  • 8820
  • 8700

Done and done. AT&T had made OS 4.5 available for a handful of handsets late last year but many felt snubbed – and rightfully so. Problem solved and better late than never, right? If you’re holding on to an older unit because the Bold isn’t your cup of tea and the Curve 8900 is still MIA, at least now you can take solace in the fact that your OS isn’t prehistoric anymore. So what are you waiting for?

Thanks, T-Rex!
